Recipe: Pineapple-Raspberry Parfaits

by Yogurt, pineapple and raspberries in a parfait glass

Tropical flavors make these yogurt cups a warm-weather treat.

 

Nonfat yogurt and some fresh or canned fruit come together quickly for a beautiful and delicious dessert. There’s no need to take in excessive calories to enjoy dessert. The sweetness of fresh berries and pineapple, or canned pineapple, contrast nicely with the creaminess of peach yogurt — or vanilla, or plain if you prefer — for a satisfying snack or after-dinner treat.

This is also a simple recipe for children to help with. Let them layer their yogurt and fruit in clear plastic glasses — it’s just as much art project as food.
